On our way up to Kansas City this weekend, we stopped off in my old college town, Stillwater, and had lunch at Eskimo Joes (next set of pics).
This place is across the street from Joes. It is significant because Garth Brooks used to play there when he was in college at Oklahoma State.

The mall was built on the site of the old Metropolitan Stadium (where the Twins played). This plaque marks the spot where the old home plate. They also kept a stadium seat on the spot where favorite son Harmon Killebrew's longest home (520') run landed. It is really weird seeing this red stadium seat seemingly randomly placed on a wall in a corner of the amusement park in the mall.

On my way out of town, I went by the famous Mall of America to get some pictures of this fascinating place. I'll be posting these pictures in the next several days.
MofA is a pretty interesting place. You can even get married here!

Our city is caught in playoff fever. The Thunder, the former Seattle Supersonics, who moved here a couple of years ago, are actually in the playoffs. This makes the first time that a major league team in a big time sport has been in a playoff situation in Oklahoma history.
